Hey gents,
Is there a website or document around which shows the primary shipping lanes for the Pacific during WWII?

Thanks in advance!

Here's a simple one. Some deluxe versions of the game came with a printed map too.

Hey Torp - do you have it in a bigger size? Would you be willing to email it to me so I could print it out? I would LOVE to have something just like that as a reference...

I will PM you my email address.

(Edit: cannot PM you... or so it appears)

The biggest shipping lane I've found in the game (running RSRDC) is the Makassar Strait between Borneo and Celebes. If you hang around there you'll be out of torpedoes within a couple days.

I don't have those maps in a larger size as they are taken off the web. But I just spent the last hour scanning the map my game came with and stitching it's four corners together. I'm posting it here. :cool:

:ping: Hi.

Try this mod. Made by CaptainCox...its a pull down map, same as above. I had it when it was first released. It was very accurate and useful: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=112750

all you have to do is save the image, send where you want on youre comp, then bring it back up and zoom in and out with the mouse wheel.

I know GlobalExplorer was working on a Sh4 version of his Sh3Gen ( for... obviously SH3 ) It took data from your savegames and creates an intel-map and a text report of it. He showed some demonstration maps last year. But not yet released afaik.

Hi guys! How about the map for Uboat side :hmmm: , say those on the Indian ocean, and pacific too:ping:? I play the addon, although quite a lot of radio contact, single, small convoys, big ones, and even TF, but still some maps would be great.
